This is what you receive from Leitax, a bayonet and six longer screws.
Caution! The following lenses use screws of different diameter.
Summilux 50/1.4 E60
Please let me know if you want to use one of these lenses and I will send you additional thinner screws.
I recommend to remove five screws from the standard six hole Leica-R bayonet.
This way, there is no risk to displace the original Leica-R bayonet.
We don't remove the original Leica-R mount, just the five screws. Then, the new Leitax mount will sit on top of the original Leica mount.
I use to leave the screw that will be at the below side of the lens when mounted on the camera.
lenses with ten screws have four longer extra screws that will hold the
mount, so you can remove the six shorter standard ones with no danger.|
You will use the standard six hole mount on most of these lenses,
The lenses that need the ten hole Leitax bayonet are:
- Vario-Elmarit 28-90/2.8-4.5
- Vario-Elmar 21-35/3.5-4
On these two, you have to remove the four screws at the additional positions only.
|Now place the Leitax bayonet on top of the original bayonet|
...and screw it with the provided longer screws.
And now you can use your Leica-R lens on your Canon camera.
